Hi Experts,

Looking for some options to integrate splunk + chatbot + amazon alex.

  1. Assume we have some data shipped to splunk.
  2. Some kind of chatbot to scan splunk data and send voice announcement on a particular event..probably to alexa? or pc speaker etc. (I know splunk has some inbuilt alerts)
  3. On demand - voice command to get status using Amazon Alex

any information would be really helpful.

thanks in advance

Fascinating stuff! One wonders if we'll see movements like the Luddite rebellion again, or if we can do better about avoiding the sorts of economic problems & fears that gave rise to it:

How difficult is it for someone to make an AI interface that can be used on my computer, that can access anything from google maps when asking where something is located (like siri) all the way to being able to scan a hard drive for the contents held within it? I work for this small company and all we do is use google maps and take old hard drives and scan them for their contents, upon request by customer, and retrieve data deleted, lost, or just unreachable due to computer malfunction. I want to see if there is an easier way to do this, by using an AI to do all the hard work, and all we have to do is tell it to scan the drive and collect the lost data and store it into either a zip file or something as such. Please let me know thoughts. Am also flexible, doesn't have to be in ruby, but a lot of things we do, we use ruby based programs that's why I'm curious if its possible.

Trending Tech Everyone Should Know About - My Thoughts
I've been thinking about this subject for a few days now, trying to come up with something unusual. But the thing that keeps coming to mind—even though I feel it's an obvious answer that everyone already does know about—is Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning.

Why? Well first, it's technology that impacts everyone, regardless of how involved you are in the tech industry. I've got little doubt that we're right on the cusp of major social change as a result of machine learning—change as significant as the Industrial Revolution. We've got self-driving cars inevitably hitting the mainstream in the near future. There's cancer detection systems that are faster and more accurate than human analysts. AI systems being trained to defend against cyberattacks. Movie dialog being written by algorithms. The list goes on and on...

And second, while these advancements will absolutely push us forward in exciting new ways, they'll also destroy many jobs. And while that job loss can be terrifying, AI opens us up for entirely new sorts of jobs, major changes to the way work is done, and more that we can't even fully conceive of yet.

Will most knowledge workers of the future become "bot wranglers"? Will some sort of universal basic income

AI is finding its way into every day business and government. The idea of AI is not a new, but what is different is that today's hardware and software is bringing the various concepts underpinning AI to a mass market.

What’s new, too, is the driver: from bots and digital assistants to autonomous vehicles Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Nvidia and others in Silicon Valley are setting a drum beat to which the rest of are marching.

How machine learning enables your best employees to work 24/7

A recent incent industry report states that artificial intelligence and machine learning have great potential, but can’t yet match the breadth of human intelligence. While I would argue you can’t have one without the other, meaning humans are an integral part of both AI and machine learning, both of these technologies have the power to be better than any single employee.

Our CTO, Hal Lonas, talks Artificial Intelligence and machine learning with Information-Management.

I downloaded an .AI image from Adobe Stock. But I don't own Adobe Illustrator, so I can't convert it to JPG or PNG to use in PowerPoint. It won't load in Inkscape, either. Is there a free, or at least inexpensive way to convert it?

Came across this on Wired today:
https://www.wired.com/story/ai-will-make-forging-anything-entirely-too-easy
I highly recommend following the "Watch" link within; it leads to a video on YouTube of one of the researchers from Stanford editing a video of George W. Bush to insert new facial and speech expression in real time using an off-the-shelf webcam.

Yep... We're going to need entirely new techniques for determining and maintaining authenticity for things like this. Hey, maybe that can be one of those uses for quantum computing somehow... I'm also thinking blockchain solutions too (even though I really have a pretty weak grasp on blockchain, it does seem like a primary purpose is to help with data integrity.)

Photoshop brought about many similar problems for photography and all sorts of techniques have had to be created to detect when things are doctored.

But really, it's most important to always have a healthy level of skepticism... Even without any sort of editing of a photograph, it's easy to bend the truth just by what you choose to show in the frame!

"Robot cyborg open palm, polygon Brain, grow future artificial intelligence".
As computers become more powerful, jobs will be replaced with artificial intelligence, leaving no place in the future for humans in the workforce. In the oncoming technological revolution, the staggering change to human mind labor will prove the skills of a programmer to be vital.

@Lucas - I had never heard of Drop Bears before... Had to go look it up. I can certainly see why driverless cars get confused!

Modem says it has been installed,
shows in device manager, but indicates no driver installed.
In Control Panel under Phones and Modems it shows...but says not functional.
Did updates, even installed a USB RS232 and set it for com 4, still, that item shows ok in
device manager, but will not install a functional modem.
Tried two different usb modems US Robotics
Tried another USR v92 serial model.
Any ideas out there?

This is so cool! I've already gone through some of the sections in Apple's Swift Playgrounds app and loved it, but this new support for programming robotic toys looks even more amazing and fun. Great way to get kids learning programming at an early age. (Ok, who am I kidding... I want this for myself!)

Any of you check out the Swift Playgrounds app or have any of these robots? Are you teaching your kids to program?

I have used Python, Natural Language Processing and web scraping technology to do some deep mining of Google's vast warehouses of articles on the web.

Is what I described considered artificial intelligence?

Or, in order to satisfy the requirement of AI must that model also automatically adjust it's algorithms based on the results of the searches? In my case, the adjustments were manual.

Curious.

Thanks.
